The Santana Hotel has an enviable address near Qawra’s seafront, along with a rooftop terrace to make the most of the views.
This place is five minutes’ walk from the pretty seaside promenade, connecting Qawra with bigger Bugibba. You’ve got two beaches within strolling distance, too – one’s sandy, while the other’s rocky.
The hotel’s rooftop sun deck has a pool, as well as plenty of room for sunbathing. Downstairs, there’s a new garden terrace with canopies, tables and chairs, and a soothing water feature.

We stayed for a week at the Santana. Staff very friendly and welcoming extremely helpful. Room satisfactory a little tired needs a bit of refurb but considering I only wanted a bed a hot shower this was fine. We only did B&B so can only comment on breakfast which was fine. All the things you would expect. Location very good turn right out of hotel few yards down road is the bus terminal so easy access to get bus to get round island. I would strongly recommend getting a travel card for 21 euros you get unlimited travel and all attractions accessible by bus. Bars around hotel within walking distance.More

12 nights in Malta
Twelve nights in Malta at the Santana we had stayed before but it was a bit tired now there has been some modernisation a great improvement. Came back 17th March. The food could have more choice but it was very good and with a choice. If you were vegetarian you would struggle. The bedroom was modern and very clean. All was going well until the school party of loads of teenagers arrived and run a mock until a number of people complained. We were disgusted at being woken up with teens running around the hotel shouting and screaming at 7am. They arrived to dinner like a swarm of locus. Staff told us the hotel has lots of bookings like this for the next few months, I don't Blair the company filling the rooms but will it cause them to loose the visitor trade, that I don't know. More
Ok if you fight for pillow cases
Sooo, we had no bedding in our room.. when I asked reception her answer was. We have none....needless to say I was not amused. After a discussion in reception at 2am it resulted in her giving me a different room key to go to a different floor and take the bedding off another bed. Myself! I was not amused! An don't even get me started on our shower. The flooding of the room daily was just something we got used to in the end! The plug is wrongly placed to drain so water just runs out of the bathroom instead of down the drain! More
a four day break
We arrived late in the evening our first impressions of the area and hotel was at least interesting We found our room fully equipped well lit, kleen well laid out and comfortable and many stations on the TV The view from our balcony well less than entertaining but we expected that But the next day we found a great breakfast awaited us not only quantity but quality As we were on fully inclusive we had the pleasure of lunch again more than we really required we also enjoyed being able to have soft drinks besides wine and beer during the day besides the coffees The evening meal was great because we enjoy early meal this was available at 1800 onwards again lots to choice from and unlimited quantity We found the staff very keen to assist if there was a issue to address and at the end of the stay the staff were more than obliging to help even when we vacated the room and offered us the opportunity to have two extra meals before we left in the evening The location of the hotel next door to the Island hop in off buses ideal and 100 yards to the bus station great unfortunately not very much in the entertainment field during the evening having said that we just enjoyed sitting and relaxing in the lounge which had very comfortable chairs Great chatting to residents from wide and far many, people nationalities involved Phil and Vera Newbury EnglandMore
Can't fault it.
I scored this hotel 5/5 purely because I couldn't fault it, yes they could maybe do somethings different but not necessarily better. The desk staff were friendly and informative, giving some good advice regarding bars and restaurants in the area, the trips rep was also very clued up and obviously experienced most of the trips herself and was we'll placed to give some honest feedback , advising us how to do the trips we wanted for the best price, the rooms we have were huge on the front of the hotel, (223, 229) we had 2 double beds in (229) and a sofa, with loads of room to spare, the bathroom was a wet room with good water pressure, this time ok would be ideal for a family the indoor pool could do with some more seats and tables around it but on the whole it was very pleasant, the water was a nice temperature, you do need to come down to the pool ready to swim because there is limited places to change ? The best thing about the hotel for me was the breakfast, serving everything you could possibly want from full English, continental, Mediterranean, even porridge ? All in all it's difficult to fault this hotel, it's clean, well positioned so you can be at the sea front in 5 minutes which ever way you turn out the hotel, we found the hotel well priced and ideal for what we wanted.More
